BD205 - Standing and Temporary Board Committees


Section: Board of Directors

The Board may create standing and temporary committees and outline their duties. Board committees shall comprise less than a majority of the membership, and the chair shall appoint committee members and designate committee chairs. Standing committee members shall serve one (1) year terms, and appointments or reappointments will be made at the annual/organizational meeting.

By definition, standing committees are ongoing committees responsible for designated jurisdictions. Standing committees should gather information on issues and policies related to assigned issues, develop recommendations to the Board on these issues, and regularly update the Board regarding the status of assignments and accomplishments.

Board standing committees are:

  • Audit-Finance Committee
  • President’s Performance Committee
  • Security Committee

All committees shall provide information and recommendations as directed by the Board to assist in its decision-making. All committee recommendations and reports will be advisory with the Board retaining final decision-making authority.

Temporary committees shall be considered dissolved when they submit final reports.

Committee meetings shall conform to the Open Meetings Law.
